Series? The Rules of Disappearing #1

This book was just… wow. In between the romance and the thriller storyline, it just caught me. I loved the whole concept of the witness protection thing. It’s not one I’ve read about before so it was really interesting. All the stuff about the mystery behind their placement and the paranoia, I really enjoy reading books like that. I mean, who doesn’t love a bit of mystery every now and then?
Mystery books tend to do this thing where they build up right until the end where it’s solved. Usually I don’t find that bad, but this book didn’t really execute it well. It starts off really strong but then it kinda goes slow because there isn’t much plot to be told. The author just seems to focus too much on Meg adapting to the new placement and finding a romance than actually solving any of the mystery.
I was really fascinated by the storyline but I thought over it and I felt like it was bit weird. The events in the book seem really mish-mashed. At the start it’s a mystery, then suddenly it’s a romance and then back to mystery then ends as a sort of romance mystery. Ugh, no. I liked it as a mystery and I liked the romance but I feel together it doesn’t click.
The characters in the book were just the best. Take our main character for example. Meg had all these little quirks that developed after she has been on run. It really showed the effects that the program did to her and I found it really believable. And then there’s Ethan. He’s like the best person ever. And the scenes with him and Meg’s little sister Mary at the pizza shop were the cutest thing ever. More please 😀
